What is steal in baseball?

Stealing is the same thing as a stolen base in baseball/softball. It is when there is a person on 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and they run to the next base while the pitcher is in the middle of their pitch. If the runner advances to the next base without being thrown out by the catcher, then they have stolen that base.
